Course 0: Math for Computer Science (ArsDigita University)


A basic introduction to the Calculus and Linear Algebra. The goal is to make students mathematically literate in preparation for studying a scientific/engineering discipline. The first week covers differential calculus: graphing functions, limits, derivatives, and applying differentiation to real-world problems, such as maximization and rates of change. The second week covers integral calculus: sums, integration, areas under curves and computing volumes. This is not meant to be a comprehensive calculus course, but rather an introduction to the fundamental concepts. The third and fourth weeks introduce some basic linear algebra: vector spaces, linear transformations, matrices, matrix operations, and diagonalization. The emphasis will be on using the results, not on their proofs.
